At center, a man is seated in three quarter profile, facing right, but turning his head to look at us, while resting his left elbow on large books stacked on an adjacent table. He has pale skin, dark eyes, arched eyebrows, and his nearly bald hea is covered in a large pink beret-like cap. He wears a white cravat and white silk shirt with frilly cuffs under a gold waistcoat, and over that he wears a loose, emerald green, floral patterned silk robe. Behind him, a deep red curtain is pulled back, showing a painting of a ship sailing into a harbor.
